The first thing that captures the attention, with this house is the careful and harmonic way in which it interacts with its surrounding environment – the beautiful embrace of the two living trees incorporated at the front porch, or the breathtaking views toward the lake, or the smooth, natural curves of the wooden cladding of the facade – everything fits with the innovative and eco-friendly approach of the architects from Alterstudio Architecture (utilizing efficiently geothermal HVAC systems, reclaimed wood, natural ventilation). The interior is also a harmonic combination between rustic warmth and modern simplicity, so this American lake-house villa enchants us not only with the mesmerizing natural views that it has on its disposal but also with the cozy charm of its architecture and design.
The interior is decided in warm colors and with rich natural materials palette – a distinctive orange-bluish thread goes throughout the house and strong wooden presence also defines the premises. The eclectic fusion between the modern architecture with its structural elements and the vintage presence of the Persian carpets and a collection of local mid-century sculptures and paintings, between some contemporary decorative elements and custom-made furniture, between furniture with smooth curves and space defining rectangular elements creates a dynamic and intriguing ambiance. There is much more to be said about this house and its thousand interesting details and beautiful solutions but best it’s to be observed and experienced – a wonderful representation of modern family home that comes to show us that functionality and family warmth are not obsolete when it comes to artistry and contemporary architecture.
